The rough and tumble town of Tombstone, Arizona, was founded in 1879. To celebrate its 100 year anniversary, Colt made a pair of beautiful centennial revolvers.

A TOWN TOO TOUGH TO DIE

Although it was silver that first drew settlers to the town of Tombstone at the turn of the century, 100 years later, it's the town's rich history that draws crowds. To celebrate the cowboys that carried a Colt at their waist, Colt produced 50 cased pairs of Tombstone Centennial single-action army revolvers in 1979.

This pair of mint pistols are being offered by Bob Hritz of Lilly's Tombstone Memories in Tombstone, Arizona. Like many gun shops across the nation, he is selling these beautiful firearms on Guns.com.
 

NEVER LEFT TOMBSTONE

The revolvers are chambered in .45 Colt. Neither of them has been fired. They come in a wood Colt factory case. The nickel finish is flawless. The tasteful factory engraving shows scenes of Tombstone on the cylinders. The grips are made of two-piece walnut.

It is a lovely set that has never left Tombstone since 1979. The original papers of the offering from a merchant in Tombstone are also included.
